Are there any more superlatives you can think of to describe last night than we’ve already seen written? Not for me.
It was another majestic evening from the boys as we cruised ever closer to the title and, despite the break we`re now entering, I`m pretty happy to wait to see us crowned rightly as Premier League champions.
Picking out a star man from every game has often proven hard this season owing to the fact that so many of our players have combined to put in top performances but, last night, one man surely shone above the rest – David Silva.
For many he’s the best player we`ve ever had and I`d probably go with that because I`ve never seen the game made to look so simple especially at this level. The praise for him last night was plentiful, too, so let`s take a look at the best of what was said about our Spanish magician on Twitter.
Is David Silva turning out to be be best player ever to play in a Manchester City shirt?

David Silva, just magnificent.
Kompany rolling back the years yet again, Sterling + Fernandinho v good after injury.
Jesus excellent in the build-up, big role in both goals. Should have scored one (no connection on header / Sterling not squaring).
Closer and closer…#MCFC

Class performance. I never thought David Silva could get better but pep has even improved him. Amazing. #mcfc

David Silva should have been voted Player of the Year already in his career. But if he doesn’t win it this year, having sustained the level of brilliance he has while coping with the trauma of the premature birth of his son, there’s no justice. Gets my vote #MCFC @MirrorFootball

The world is 4.5 billion years old and we are lucky enough to exist at the same time as David Silva. pic.twitter.com/zdfuqU8DnT

The day David Silva retires is going to be the hardest I will ever cry in my life.
